Thoughts on "Disruptive Innovation"

I think that this is a very exciting time to be a teacher. The innovation that is going to happen is going to be mind blowing. I think that Iphone technology and Wii video games will be incorporated into education. To think that Public education is going to change that much is also a little scary. Are Teachers still going to be needed? To think that by the time my 2nd grader is finished with school there might not even be a school. Students could do all of their work from home and just talk to teachers when they needed help or to check in once a week. Computers are getting more and more cheaper, access to the Internet and research is getting easier, it only stands to reason that technology is going to replace jobs.
